  author={Hau-Huu Bui and Khanh-Quang Tran and W. Chen},
  journal={Bioresource technology},
Pyrolysis of residues from the oil extraction process of two types of microalgae, Chlamydomonas (C. sp. JSC4) and Chlorella sorokiniana (C. Sorokiniana CY1) was studied by means of a thermogravimetric analyzer. Five pseudo-components (hemicellulose, cellulose, lignin, lipid and protein) model with n=1 or n#1 was assumed for a kinetic analysis of the collected pyrolysis data. The model with n#1 resulted in a slightly better fit quality and reasonable kinetic parameters. The calculated activation… CONTINUE READING
